Ok I know this has been beat to death so take it easy on me please. I have read several threads and more than likely missed the one answering my question.
I'm an older guy (just turned fifty) , bought this truck as a driver ,running errands and stuff, not for long trips just usually me but an occasional passenger. Truck has 100k on it. I drove it on a trip the other day for 100ish miles and got more intimate with the noises and feel of it. It feels like it needs new shocks and maybe springs ,front looks low (looks to be frowing in the rear) (told you I read threads about this).
Looks like the Bilstein 5100 is what most people are doing. With that said here is what I want and could some one tell me what setup I need to match that please?
I grew up around plenty of rednecks and would have had giant tires on a 4x4 if I could have afforded it, I couldnt so I just always admired so there is a hint of red in me but age has mellowed that out.
I dont want to bounce around alot ,my back hurts. I want a better ride, I wont be doing any off-roading to speak of but who knows. I want it to sit a little higher than stock but not obviously jacked up. Might go with a larger diameter tire than stock but probably wont do a wide tire. I wont be hauling any heavy loads as I have other vehicles for that, just bicycles and such.
Any recomendations on a particular setup??
Remember no flaming . I appreciate any help you can give.. Thanks
Spell this out in simple terms so even an idiot can understand please.
